I have been asked by several to post a link to the opening event at ArtRaw Projects gallery in New York on Thursday, February 19, 2009. The event will be streaming live so should be fun to watch. I also have a friend, Jacquleine D. Allison that will be showing at the same event. Tune in and watch for our pieces. 7-9 p.m. EST. should be limited or no commercial interruptions.
The pieces for the 50th Annual Juried Art Competition at San Diego Art Institute's Museum of the Living Artist have been selected. My mixed media piece, screw your courage to the sticking place, was selected to be shown in this exhibition. The show opens on March 20, 2009 and runs through May 10, 2009. If you are in the area. stop in and check it out. The title comes from Shakespeare's play, MACBETH, which is collaged into the piece.
Start spreading the news...my pieces are shipping this week to New York City. They will be part of an emerging artist show in West Chelsea, NY. This is the inaugural exhibit for art raw gallery, and will open on February 19, 2009 and run through March 21 2009. The gallery is located at 210 Eleventh Ave, 905 [@ W25th St]New York, NY 10001. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am to 6pm. There are 300 artists displayed in this show. These were selected from over 25,000 submittals. This is my NY debut.
Throughout recorded history, man has explored the connections between his perceived world of events, emotions and environment. He has utilized music, art and literature as a voice of expression. The beauty and rhythms of these connections seem to synchronize and play out over time to form a significant socio-cultural record. My work is a record of the connections and relationships that I have discovered within my own perceived world, through music, art and literature. This process may start on a somewhat literal level but it soon evolves into new discoveries and interpretations unbounded by conventional time. My marks and imagery form the rhythm of this dialogue.
